    Car turns over but won't start. I tried putting the key in the on position for about 20 minutes, it resets the computer, then the car started. The next day, I had the same problem. I had the car towed to my garage, but it started and they couldn't find anything. Again, the next day the same thing??

    2003 Alero at first it would act like it was not going to start and then start. Now when driving it it dies. I was told to dust off the gas sensor bout i do not know how to find it.

    I had the same problem with my 2003 Olds alero about a month ago. We bought a new battery and it seemed to be solved. Now starting to do it again.

The most common cause for this is the Passlock Ignition Cylinder. This is what sends the theft information to the body control module to allow it to start. Have also had bad body control modules do this as well.

I had the same thing happen to my car.When you turn it to the on position and wait 20 minutes it resets itself.what is happened to your car is the antitheft is not letting you start your car. you need a by-pass modular to bypass the antiheft so that it will allow your car to start.This is what I did to mine and I do not have any proublems with is starting now.
